Yes, February 20th 2014 is D-Day (or Head-On-A-Stick-Day). Director Greg McLean announced at ComicCon on the weekend that we’ll be releasing early next year, at least in Australia. No word yet on the international release.

“Thrilled to announce the release date for Wolf Creek 2 in Australia
and New Zealand will be Feb 20th, 2014. Thank you Village Roadshow!,”
herr director just tweeted.

We’ve spent the last how-ever-many weeks running test screenings while Sean (our editor) and Greg put the final touches to the edit. I’m happy to report that despite the intensity of… a few certain scenes we had no walkouts! I thought that was amazing considering the hell we put our characters through, but hopefully that means the story’s compelling enough to glue people to their seats. The feedback from these screenings turned out to be quite worthwhile actually, because it highlighted a few things we needed to compress (such as the start) and clarify (the ending), but also validated the power of other scenes I was worried might have gone a bit too far. (If you tell me to ‘go for it’, I will. I cannot be held responsible.) We’re all locked off now, so bring on the festivals, then bring on our big release.

I’ve also just recorded an interview for the behind-the-scenes video (being directed by Cameron Oliver). I’ve been lying awake at night since thinking of all the witty things I could have said, but hopefully I wasn’t too tongue-tied and managed to say something of use for the DVD. Quite a weird experience to be having to coherently talk about the story after so many years. I can be heard to rabbit on about things I’m passionate about (and say little otherwise), so I think Cam will have to do a bit of pruning to my babble. Still, I get my head on camera again. That and the cameo should scratch that itch for now.

And here’s the controversial one-sheet, by the way. Yes it’s a little similar to a certain other bloody film making the rounds at the moment (cough-Evil Dead-cough). Consider it a homage I guess. Regardless, Mick cuts a striking figure, don’t you think? And this is Mick’s movie. He’s going to be under your skin by the end of it.

Wolf Creek 2 Gets a Release Date…in Australia

Roadshow Films announced that it will release the sequel, Wolf Creek 2, on February 20, 2014 in Australia.  Hopefully, a U.S. debut will follow shortly after that.

“Our goal is to create an even more suspenseful, chilling and unforgettable experience for audiences and we feel very confident they will not be disappointed,” said Greg Mclean.  “I’m so excited to be once again working with Roadshow Films on the new movie and look forward to unleashing the next instalment of this thriller across Australia early next year.”

Wolf Creek was the number one Australian film in 2005 and also became the highest grossing Australian R18+ film of all time.

Trapped in a bloody battle of wits with sadistic serial killer Mick Taylor, a fresh group of unsuspecting backpackers find no mercy in this terror-filled sequel to Wolf Creek. His irreverent attitude towards human life has escalated to a sadistic new level, more terrifying than ever, will anyone escape this gruesome game or has the nightmare only just begun?

Written by Greg McLean and Aaron Sterns and produced by Helen Leake, Greg Mclean and Steve Topic, the film comes nine years after the original Wolf Creek hit screens internationally.

Wolf Creek 2 will be distributed in Australia by Roadshow Films. International sales are being handled by Arclight Films.
